New trick for grouper

Post by geofish »

I caught this seafood platter from 18 to 35 feet of water waiting for the fog to burn off & the wind to die down (never did). I didn't catch my usual load of pinfish for the livewell, so I tried cutbait, squid, etc. What did the trick for this 28 inch gag was a white z-man chatterbait with a grey gulp minnow, dropped straight down & fished like a vertical jig. I caught a smaller gag 2 minutes later doing the same thing. I had one palm-sized grunt in the livewell so I dropped it down looking for a really big gag, but alas just caught a 23.5 incher. Still fun.
All in all a good day on the water.Image

Those filets will be a nice change from turkey leftovers. Good job!

If you were fishing for taste you hit a pretty darn good trifecta. I like almost any kind of fish but grouper, flounder and snapper are right up there with my favorites. Nice catch.

Surprising they are that shallow but I guess water temps don't really reflect outside temps right now(warm mostly).
